    Mississippi 1991 :eek: Could have sworn that was around in the late 70's/early 80's, was it re-released?

    Thing with Cohen he is first and foremost a poet ... a mystical early sixties beat poet.
    A very deep and interesting poet.
    He could also play guitar so someone persuaded him to put his poetry to music and the voice though not a singing voice added to the dark mystery of his words.
    He puts pain wonder mystery imprisonment release tragedy religion sex and politics into the mix ... hardly any boy meets girl boy loses girl stuff from this guy.
    I've been listening to him for forty five years and he just keeps on going!
    He's another Dylan come Rolling Stone ... a history of sex and drugs and rock n roll and general debauchery but ... still rocking even with a bus pass.
    Lot of people never got him ... lot of people don't like his stuff but that's ok ... we can't all like the same stuff.
    I can't stand boy bands and girl bands!!!!!!
    Not a great lover of pop full stop.
    Never liked Elvis never liked Queen and they were obviously very good at what they did but if it doesn't flick that switch then it just doesn't.

    Should we be starting a Leonard Cohen Fan Club thread?

    Speaking of music...



    Feedback would be appreciated, encouraged, nurtured and finally put in a warm blanket to rest.

    Thanks so much! I wanted to just bust it out and see what happened. I think my neighbours now hate me, though...

    Not your fault if they don't like it! Thought it was very energetic, liked the words.

    I love a cover version when done well.
    This is one of those IMO.
    Metallica covering Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Tuesday's gone".

    Here's a wee tune by me.
    I know it's probably not your kind of thing but I reckon you could sing over one my noise creations really well.
    Video editing ... my next computing challenge.
    The one here is very mediocre but I have a lot of practising to do ... a lot to learn.
    Like the music making!
    I will make a good vid within a month I reckon ....good as in edited to fit what's going on with the rhythm and
    beat etc.


    Without the video ..... http://www.reverbnation.com/jackbis61yearsold

    The music stuff I've done for yonks and really enjoy engineering it all in my headphones but the video stuff!
    Hard work with not a lot going on for long periods and all I've done s to steal images and stuff off youtube and slice it up here and a bit.
    The real talent is getting it to go with the music I think.
    Mine starts off on chaos street goes into psychedelic mode then ends up in the second world war!
    Lazy can't be bothered putting the effort in that is to me.
    I made the tune weeks ago and it ended with that huge explosion so I had to find a video clip with an explosion in to match my sound effects ... sorry the people of Hiroshima for being so flippant!
    I am determined to get it right though.
    And thankyou for your kind comments.

    You come across in a good relaxed professional manner, good for you. What a talent you have.
    Keep at it, you're heading for a brilliant future, remember though, keep your feet firmly on the ground
    at all times and you won't go wrong.


    Best wishes to you.

    Good band Boney M and they had some great hits.

    Last night I sat-up and watched the History of the Eagles, watched it countless times now but never tire of watching it as they are one of the greatest bands of all time.
